Clayton Hall is on the Northwest corner of the church- you will see it as a red star in the below image. Plenty of parking is available in lots to the east, south and west of the church (outlined in yellow and blue on the below image). Be aware most of the parking on the street is for a maximum of 1 or 2 hours. Also, if you park in the lot to the west of the church (outlined in blue), do not back-in or pull-through the spots. You will be able to enter the church from Church Street or from the east parking lot.
Look forward to seeing each of you there!
